Review category: Cases
Manufacturer info: More info

The Hard Case with Keyboard for 7″ and 10.2″ Tablets isn't a brand name, super expensive keyboard case, but that doesn't matter since it looks great and performs very well. The keyboard has great tactile response and isn't loud. It will dramatically increase typing speed and improve any app or game which requires a keyboard. This is a must-have for just about any 7" or 10.2" tablet.

Why not just buy a netbook for $200 instead of a $300 Pad then another $30-$70 for a keyboard and case?

These things still seem a bit silly to myself.

Why $300? The price is almost half of that.

Hmm... I'm going to see if I can take out the touchscreen out of a netbook that does not have a touchscreen but just a regular screen... Nope. Can't do that.

It depends on what your needs are.

Nice review Rodney!

Does this case work for both the TrackPad & WoPad? I am thinking about purchasing one but undecided...leaning towards the WoPad.

Also, I'd recommend that any purchaser of this case spend less than 5 dollars and purchase some industrial strength Velcro to additionally secure the latch. I have a huge roll of it that I use on a regular basis to mount and conceal hubs, HDMI switches, routers and other lightweight electronics.

Yes, it fits both both the Wopad and Trackpad, and just abut any 7" tablet. Their other model fits 10.2" tablets.

I believe the word your looking for is Velcro?

True, strong Velcro would work well for that latch as well.

Doenst make sense for me. A touch screen with a keyboard? Common... Its like a PS3 or an XBOX with a keyboard and a mouse.

I play Unreal Tournament 3 all the time on my PS3 with a KB/M it's sweet. A keyboard could come in handy the off time you're going to write a lengthy email, or edit a document.

Well, this is the future. You'll see many tablets having keyboard options, especially Windows 7 and upcoming Windows 8 OS. Being able to pop the tablet off and use it as a eBook reader or to browser the web in your comfy chair makes perfect sense to me ;)

I'd like something more secure than a magnet that secures the keyboard case with the ability to snap into place when transporting.

+ good idea, good standoff, keyboard works ok - needs mini-usb, only 7-10 inch tablets fits on it, the magnetic lats is indeed not that great, i would use a laptop instead of this. yes it needs work

As I mentioned in the Video Review, you can get these cases with a mini-USB keyboard lead instead of the regular USB lead if required. I just showed the mini-USB to USB adapter as an example.

A regular USB will be much more sturdy to carry around than a mini-usb that will get bent easy.

***** invention! USB connection is bad because of the compatibility. Why not bluetooth?

USB is a universal standard. (Cheap)
Bluetooth will require additional power that the USB keyboard can get from the tablet.
This is not about innovation, it's about a tablet case that provides a simple keyboard.

Hey! Where's that devil emoticon when we need one? :) *chuckle*

Bluetooth = batteries! :) Or is there such a thing called "wireless power over Bluetooth?" Nope. But is there? :)

It seems like they should have put a mini USB connector on it, I don't know of many tablets that have full-sized USB ports.
